An Apple A Day....

I've been taking a bit of a break for September but I wanted to play along with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC167)

Since it's apple season I decided to ink up an image from Stamping Bella's Lulu's Set of Fruit.


The image is stamped with versafine black ink onto watercolour paper.  I then coloured the apples and flower with distress markers.  For the basket I stamped the image onto a piece of ds paper from MME's Dolled up then paper pieced it.  I used the same ds on the rest of the card.  I shaded around the image with tumbled glass distress ink.  In the centre of the flower I added a tiny rhinestone.  The border is MFT's small scallop border die-namic and the banner is MFT's die-namics Fishtail flags Stax.


Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations and remember to link your card on Karen's blog if you play along with us for a chance to be a Sweet Sunday Guest Stamper.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

Dana
